Certain safety for Everton may encourage Allardyce to finally give him a tryout, especially after last week's antics, where Wayne Rooney was subbed of in the Merseyside derby and looked more than displeased with his boss' decision.

Sam Allardyce has sought to offer an explanation as to why Davy Klaassen isn't getting a look-in at Everton.

Rooney was taken off with just 57 minutes played in the goalless draw at Goodison Park to be replaced by Idrissa Gueye, and seemed angry with the call as he grabbed his coat with force and muttered to himself on the bench.

And Allardyce wasn't happy with Rooney's performance in the previous home game with Manchester City, either.

Having played at the very top for Manchester United for over a decade, Rooney is unlikely to take kindly to the suggestion that he struggles against high quality opposition. He also believes that adopting Pogba's free roaming position at United would pay dividends. Nothing. The excessive level got here on the opening day in August, when Wayne Rooney's second debut was a goalscoring one however, be practical, exclusively these with photographic reminiscences will recollect it in 20 years.

A heavy defeat would have been the final act for Allardyce, who is in a loveless marriage with Evertonians and surely can't be in charge next season.
